I started this business when I was twenty-two. I was two years out of undergrad and miserable in an eight to five. I stayed with that job through my first forty weddings (over my first two wedding seasons) and when I'd booked thirty for the third year, I gave my notice.
That was 2010, and now here we are: over 200 couples photographed in Chicago, New York, Paris, Italy, London, South Africa, Bermuda, California, Texas, the Midwest... and I absolutely love what I do. If that doesn't call for champagne (a '96 Taittinger, perhaps?), I don't know what does.
My husband Wil and I both grew up traveling internationally, so, unsurprisingly, we do so now as well. We both travel for work; he spends three days a week in New York every week and I try to join him at least one week a month. Outside of the US, I accept a few destination commissions a year and love to leave enough time on the calendar for our leisure trips too.
We've enjoyed Greece, Guatemala, Morocco, Austria, Amsterdam, Dubai, Germany, Paris, London, Switzerland, South Africa, Bermuda. We can't wait to get back to Austria and South Africa. Australia is at the top of his "next" list and Venice is at the top of mine.
One of my favorite things about travel weddings is all of the time we get to spend with the families! There's something extra special about being able to photograph the whole wedding week or weekend's events.
Local clients take note, I love it when you bring me in for all the festivities as well!
